Hi,
I was inspecting the covers below the engine and found the one I need to remove to change oil an filter. However I also removed one forward of that approx 5” diameter with on screw, there appears to be a filter very similar to engine oil one in there, can anyone advise what this is for?
Thanks

I have a 2019 plate Mazda CX-5 Akera and would like to have an option to select a different Voice from the standard.
Is there a way to do this? I have searched the manual but cannot see a way.
Thanks

My 2018 is Sonic Silver the paintwork marks easily , scratches, chips easily, the plastic areas in particular. The windscreen also has several chips one which has been repaired. Apart from that I am very pleased with the car my second CX5, the 2015 model previously owned was much better body wise.

Maintenance / Which oil and coolant???
« Last Post by Jeff-C on March 15, 2020, 10:58:36 am »
Good morning peeps. Got an oil change coming up, and I'll be doing them myself from now on. I'm looking for recommendations for which oil you guys use, either manufacturer recommended or a good quality alternative. Also, after having my CX-5 for nearly 2 years, I've noticed the coolant level has dropped, probably just under 1cm in that time, so what coolant do i need to top up or do a complete change. Thanks in advance

Car is a 64 plate 2.2 diesel sport nav

Daughter has just bought a 2015 Peugeot 3008 2.0 diesel, 163bhp, auto box. Nice car with all the accessories you could want.
Does it come with a tow rope? :o :o ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

Best advice would be to not offer tows to strangers.

Mazda admitted to problem on Soul Red Metallic, but was sorted post Jan 19 production.
Paint softness partly attributable to the EU directive requiring these paints now
to be water based.

Quite a lot on US forum about it.

Bodywork / Paintwork scratches and windscreen chips
« Last Post by Rob99 on March 13, 2020, 07:23:38 am »
Bought a new CX-5 in October in a beautiful deep crystal blue. It looked outstanding when I picked it up but hasn’t stayed that way long.

Driving the car home from the dealership after picking it up new, I joined the M25 to get home. By the time I had done the 30 mile journey, I had two medium sized stone chips on the windscreen. I was not driving close to the cars in front and was being particularly cautious in a brand new car.

Since October, every panel has a scratch or two. None are deep, but all are noticeable. I have never hit anything in this car and the damage has not been caused by any collisions with anything. 

I can only guess that the paintwork is so soft that it gets scratched by people walking past and brushing it!

One side that is particularly bad is where I have to drive very slowly down a narrow road that has soft bushes. The car every now and then has to gently drive so the tips would touch the car but these are soft and have never damaged any other car I have had in the last thirty years that do the same journey.

This weekend, the drivers windscreen wiper has scratched a complete arc that follows the travel of the wiper. I guess the scratch is around two feet in length and is right in my line of sight perfectly. I assume a bit of grit has done it.

All my previous cars (seven of them) have never suffered from any paintwork or windscreen damage.

My previous car (Ford Focus Titanium X) was bought from new and sold after seven years without a blemish on the paintwork or windscreen.  This CX-5 is only five months old.

I’m not just having a moan but would be interested if any other 2019 CX-5 owners have also noticed the paint is extremely fragile or the windscreen suffers damage easily?

Even my kids know not to touch the paint work in case their fingernails scratch the car which is ridiculous.

I really love the car apart from this and wouldn’t choose anything else but do feel let down a bit.
